So now the real work begins.
Last week was my vacation. Didn’t have anywhere to go, so I drank too much and installed Linux on my machine at home. Gave it about 1/4 of my total hard disk space -15GB (half of my second drive).
It seems to be pretty okay. The modem and printer are putting up a fight, but I’ll conquer them eventually. Mostly I’m installing stuff in a cookbook fashion. I installed an older Blender version (the one that came with the manual) and it works fine. Well, okay, the static version works fine. I’ll figure out how to get the dynamic version working at some point.
Just letting you all know what I’ve been up to, and giving you the heads up since I’ll be bugging the Blender-Linux folk on the Q&A board over these coming months.
